Vanessa Allard joins the Red Beard team after 13 years as a practitioner in Boulder, CO, and Copenhagen, Denmark. Vanessa is a somatic therapist and coach certified in Rolfing/Structural Integration, TRE, and Somatic Experiencing. She also brings a significant understanding of movement with her long study of the Feldenkrais Method, Hierarchy of Movement, and other somatic practices. Vanessa works both individually and with small groups online supporting self-awareness, empowerment, healing, and growth.
Vanessa’s therapeutic approach fluidly weaves together her broad set of modalities highlighting mindfulness and body-felt sense awareness. Her approach is person-centered and trauma-informed.
Besides these therapeutic modalities, Vanessa has a passion for small group facilitation, recognizing the unique power of healing in community. In her groups she uses principles of Non-Violent Communication, Authentic Relating, and somatic work to foster embodied self-awareness, richer communication, and enhanced capacity for authentic connection.
